UFOs Spotted Throughout The Years In Weld County

Weld County phenomena

- July 7, 1947: A Greeley man working on a hay grinder north of
Lucerne said he saw three flying saucers at 10 a.m. They were
traveling at a high speed to the southwest. The next day, the
most famous of all UFO incidents was announced - the reputed
crash of flying saucers in Roswell, N.M.

- On Aug. 25, 1949, a 12-year-old girl who lived northeast of
Greeley reported a "flying disk" over her house in the early
evening. She said it was flying far above a small plane. About
the same time, some men were flying their small plane in the
area, but the girl insisted what she saw was a disk above the

- In 1952, although the exact date is unknown, a Weld County
farmer reported he saw five "flying saucers" pass over his farm
north of Greeley about 6 p.m. He said he also saw five fighter
jets come through the area, possibly searching for the flying
saucers, but the "speed of the saucers was immensely greater
than the jets." The Tribune story also stated "Women folks were
frightened by the terrible noise."

- Also in 1952, people reported a small flying disk was found in
the 800 block of 5th Street in downtown Greeley. It was smoking
when found, and a neighborhood boy later admitted to making the
disk out of a phonograph record, wire and a burning fuse.

- Throughout the 1970s and into the 80s, cattle mutilations
grabbed headlines throughout Weld County, and Colorado and other
western states. Ranchers reported their cattle were found dead
in fields, no tracks around them, their eyes, udders and anal
parts removed with scalpel-like incisions. Some ranchers said
they saw lights in the sky on the nights before the dead cattle
were found. Veterinarians at Colorado State University said the
wounds were caused by coyotes or other predators. Some say the
mutilations continue, but ranchers stopped reporting them
because they weren't taken seriously.

- Early 1970s, a family living in the Hillside area of south
Greeley began watching the silent, moving lights over their
house for several nights. At one point, neighbors and the family
sat atop their houses to watch the lights. They never found an

- 1991: Residents in northern Weld County - Pierce, Nunn and
Ault - reported a bright blue light in the sky that lit up the
entire area around the plains. Officials said it could have been
a meteor, but the blue light was unlike other meteor sightings.

- 1999: North of Greeley and south of Eaton, six people reported
seeing a bright green light fill the sky, between 8:30 and 9
p.m. Again, some said it was a meteor.

- June 22, 1993: A northern Weld County rancher found one of her
horses, named "Supercharger," dead in a field not far from the
ranch house. The horse appeared to have smooth cutting marks on
the head, with one eye and ear removed. There were cuts around
the jaw, and the tongue was removed. The rancher was angry when
told by CSU veterinarians that it was caused by coyotes and
birds. "Coyotes with scalpels," the rancher remarked
